Every season allows you to appreciate your home in a new way. In winter, it's all about cozying up. But come summer, we're ready to bust open the windows, turn it up to 11, and bring in new fun and colors. The following items embody the type of dynamic cheer we crave in a summer home refresh. Best of all? Nothing's over $100, so you can save your pennies for other things ... or just get extra stocked on summer decor.

4. Erin Gates by Momeni Thompson Brookline Gold Hand Woven Wool Area Rug 2' X 3', $28.79

8. Camilia Birds Wall Art by Drew Barrymore Flower Home, $89

Drew Barrymore's Walmart collection continues to surprise us. Case in point: this pair of floral prints, which looks more like you scored big-time at an estate sale.

We love the traditional-meets-modern twist of this fun lamp, and the hue is undeniably summery.
